Friend needs meal delivery after surgery, any suggestions for a service or chef?

Hello,

My dear friend lives in Lincoln Park and she is going to have hip surgery next week. She will be more or less bed-bound for six weeks after that. She'll have some help from friends, but none of them are healthy cooks or eaters. She would like to find someone who could make and deliver a few days worth of nutritionally balanced, preferably organic, tasty meals at a time (just lunch and dinner, the friends can manage breakfast).

I know there are tons of services and personal chef businesses in Chicago that do this sort of thing, but I wondered if anyone here has had personal experience with any of them. We'd prefer to find a tiny business -- maybe just a single person who makes wholesome meals at a reasonable price. And if delivery is an issue, maybe one of the friends could pick up meals.

Thank you,
ninrn
